SHILLONG, Nov 24 - Meghalaya Governor Tathagata Roy has declined to accede to the State government�s request for imposing Administrator�s Rule in Khasi Hill Autonomous District Council (KHADC), an official said.
The denial by the Governor is a shot in the arm for the newly elected Chief Executive Member Latiplang Kharkongor and his newly formed Executive Committee after the State government recommended Administrator�s Rule in the council.
Deputy Chief Minister Prestone Tynsong had said that the State government has recommended Administrator�s Rule in KHADC after the Tei�well Dkhar-led United Democratic Alliance (UDA) executive committee lost a no-confidence motion moved by the Opposition Congress on Wednesday.
�The Governor has declined to accede to the State government�s request for imposing Administrator�s Rule in KHADC,� a Raj Bhavan official said.
Four-time KHADC member Kharkongor was elected unopposed as the new Chief Executive Member (CEM) of the Council. The UDA had boycotted the election of the CEM.
